network connection issue
jim3630,
In all the spup's (B2 not yet installed) I have the issue of the carrier lost also. Sometimes the SNS works better, sometimes the network wizard.
I stopped reporting it.
My network device is the IPW2100 so nothing to do with broadcom.

Foe those with synaptics woes try to run this:

It will either fix it or ..

Cheers

Sub_title: Package request
 

For running Slacko on the Pentium D machine, I'll need pnm2ppa in order to drive my HP Deskjet 720C. On Lupu I can download it from the Ubuntu repos on PPM but I haven't noticed a Slacko version. Testing Beta 2 on that machine will have to wait until tomorrow.

Beem that's good to know. Something changed in 264 or 266 that just before 528 with my wl.ko went from requiring Frisbee to make the conncetion with SNS and network wizard. rerwin's work made the difference I believe but no one ever mentioned why sns and nw started working so well.

---
today still don't require frisbee in 528 or 529

----
thought the improvement in sns and cw performance in 528 would pass to their use in next disto. since not is why expect it's rerwin's work.

Hello Smile!

Just a report from a Brookdale (rev3) machine ....

There were these rectangular caleidoscopic patches if I on first boot and first restart of X (after personalising the settings) didn't move the mouse Shocked - and this is not material for The journal of Irrepeatable Results, I performed the fresh boot drill over and over and ... Smile.

Anyway, tricking my way past this initial obstacle, making a savefile, rebooting and instructing the bootmanager to load the devx - upon next boot the puppeee-blue jwm-theme played tricks on me (yes, confirmed by repetitive experimentation) - Inactive foreground got set the same as Inactive background Rolling Eyes Shocked (quite interesting effect, really Confused).


Well, I couldn't leave it with that, tried a new approach - set i915.modeset=1 on the kernel line, after which I cannot, in any way, provoke the colourful patches again Smile Smile Smile.

Hope this, as it looks, is the end to my i82845 Brookdale (rev3)-intel/i915 saga Smile Smile Smile


By the way, .... vesa has always been acting up ..... (but, that's with most, if not all, of the recent pups I've tried on this machine ........... so no fret ....... Smile ).

Cheers Smile/ MHHP

Fantastical - everything works first time. Got a FULL install. Would be even better if that old EudoraOSE .pet would work!

You're right about Lucid. I have the same experience.

01micko, saw the note about flloopfix on the first note for synaptics touchpads but (sorry) didn't catch the need to manually run it. I now have run it (need to run flsynclient first to create .flsynclient). For me, congratulations, you have fixed the touchpad! Very Happy Curious as to when you sleep.

My Inspiron 1100 also has Brookdale (rev 03) graphics. (Shouldn't we get a group discount for pain and suffering?) I have not yet had the graphics problems that DaveS and MHHP have found, just the 50% failing to boot that is the kernel's/X's fault, not yours. I will try the i915.modeset per MHHP and and collect data to compare boot successes over the next few days.

First glance

- Slickpet: Some fun-sfs requires openGL, but there is no link to install this
- Pburn: Icons missing in the menu - I plan a fix.
- Pfilesearch: Buggy fileselect widget, and should be updated to 1.25
- Pbackup: Buggy fileselect widget, and should be updated to 3.1.9
- Pmirror: Buggy fileselect widget, and should be updated to 0.5-1

This was all I could find to blame. - Not much..... Smile

Hello Smile!

My "install-SM-langpacks-script" didn't work - there were no langpacks for SM-2.3, - revoked Shocked in favour of 2.3.2.

Slacko's SM-2.3 un-updatable to 2.3.2 Shocked.

Anyway, installed SM-2.3.2 - then ran seamonkey --version, which reports ..... 2.3.1 Shocked , so probably not entirely slacko's fault Wink Cool, guess SM dev's were panicky, and releasing updates panicly, due to the recently reported "fraudulent SSL certificate issuance".

Otherwise working nicely Smile
Cheers Smile/ MHHP

Hi 01Micko et al,

My Slacko 4.99.4 uses the multi-session CD/DVD option in conjunction with a USB stick (to which I save data in real time).

It is already working perfectly and is fit for comprehensive and immediate use should my ancient internal hard drive, with my trusty Lupu 5.10, fail.

I very much like the speed and ease of use of the SeaMonkey browser and email and the quick and effective on-the-fly sfs loader/unloader.

In case it may be worth mentioning, NicoEdit seems to appear under both the Utility and the Document headings in the Main Menu.

My regards and thanks

PS I have some 600 MB of RAM which enabled me to install Wine and a SeaMonkey upgrade plus six small pets, but I don't envisage any problems because I shall avoid saving much more to the CD/DVD as I am very close to my "RAM full" limit. I suspect, but I do not know that it may be necessary to have at least 512 MB RAM to run a successful multi-session CD/DVD even using tricks.

Edit Now I am in an upgraded version from 499-1 to 499-4 instead telling it to upgrade.

It is worth on first trying a beta to boot up with
'puppy pfix=ram'
this will give you a pristine beta
and then try an upgrade . . .
Also try and slap yourself with a halibut (or other large fish)
to simulate the effect of some feedback on developers
. . . well it is what I do . . . Wink

All feedback is useful, which is more than can be said for the halibut slap . . . Embarassed

Me too.
I have recently been making use of the composer component to edit HTML.
In Lucid I tended to download Firefox
but in Slacko am content to use the default Seamonkey
The on the fly SFS loader (Menu / Setup /Setup)
I used to install GoogleEarth SFS which requires the ATI driver in Slickpet

B2 Working OK for me, so far Cool
